Contrary to early American literature and Hollywood license, the Last of the Mohicans continue to outlive James Fenimore Cooper’s book-ending prediction. They are alive and thriving in a beautifully forested section of Northern Wisconsin.

The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican lndians is originally from the northeastern part of the United States. Mohican, originally pronounced Muh-he-con-ne-ok, means “People of the waters that are never still.” Like their name, they have been on many trails, seemingly never still, on a journey to their present-day home.

They leave their name prominently in the state at one of their former homes – Stockbridge, Wisconsin – located on the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago. They have been at their present location in Shawano County since 1856, having obtained the lands by treaty from their neighbor to the north, the Menominee Tribe.

The reservation near Bowler, Wisconsin, consists of 40,000 acres, of which 16,000 acres are held in trust. The tribal population is approximately 1,500 with the main occupations in tribal government, health, gaming, logging and small business. The tribe operates a comprehensive health center, a community-based residential facility, a family recreation and fitness center, and offers child day care services.

Visitors can experience tribal traditions and culture at the Arvid W. Miller Memorial Library and Museum, or you can attend the annual Mohican Pow-wow. An outdoor replica of an authentic Mohican village depicts traditional tribal life. Many enjoy the annual Mohican Pow-wow, a fascinating cultural event for teh whole family. The Tribe’s beautiful Pine Hills 18 hole golf course offers an inviting challenge to all levels of players. Special features include a new second nine and new clubhouse facility.
